Should People With Acne Use Makeup?

I get a lot of questions regarding makeup. In this post I’ll do my best to address them. We’ll cover the following: 
- Pros of makeup, or why you should consider using makeup.
- Does makeup cause acne?
- Do you need to worry about comedogenic ingredients in cosmetics?
- The ‘dark side of beauty’ arguments, i.e. can cosmetic ingredients disrupt hormones and cause cancer? And should you be worried about them. #acne  
Learn the pros and cons of makeup. Properly selected and used makeup can reduce stress and improve your skin.

Ideas are like roads. Using roads you can get to places, but in order to get to your destination, you have to choose the correct roads.

Ideas are much the same. Ideas lead to actions that lead to results. Good ideas lead to resourceful actions and eventually to positive results. Consequently, poor ideas lead to frustration and lack of results.

The natural and holistic health sphere is a perfect fertilizer for bad ideas. Recently a 16-year old reader got in touch with me. He has been on the road to ‘holistically clear skin’ for about 7 months now. He has seen some results, but just like so many others, has hit the end of the road.

He sent out an SOS for me asking where to go from here. Sadly, his email is a textbook example of bad ideas sprouted in the holistic health community. So I’ll take this opportunity to set straight some misconceptions and hopefully set him (and others like him) on the road to clear skin.

Recently published study calls into question Dr. D'Adamo's popular Blood Type Diet theory. The study shows people who 'ate right for their type' did no better than people who ate the 'wrong' blood type diet. In addition to talking about the study, I'll also take a skeptical look at the scientific basis of the whole theory.

Can the location of acne tell you something? Not really. At least if you adhere to silly concepts like science and reality..

Fantastic article. Maybe not directly applicable to acne but definitely in other areas of life.
 
The Science of Marginal Gains <- Good read!

So often we convince ourselves that change is only meaningful if there is some large, visible outcome associated with it. Meanwhile, improving by just 1 percent isn’t notable (and sometimes it isn’t evennoticeable). But it can be just as meaningful, especially in the long run.

Turmeric is hyped as having amazing healing properties, and of course it can also cure acne! In this post I’ll go over some missing facts regarding turmeric that may have gotten lost on the hype. If you are, or are planning to, use turmeric for acne, you should read this first. #acne   #turmeric    #curcumin

Study shows acne patients eat 4 times more sugar than people with clear skin.

A study just published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics shows acne patients eat more sugar and junk food than people with clear skin.

Today I want to share with you a high tech treatment that can drastically reduce sebum production, at least temporarily. It can also help with acne scars.
